Newman Projection Video Part 1

Newman-Projection Tutorial Video Series by Leah4SciNewman Projection Series: Video 1
This video explains conformational isomers and how to visualize and draw Newman Projections
Also discussed are staggered and eclipsed conformations, along with a potential energy diagram for the conformational isomers of ethane from 0 – 360 degrees

  1. Your videos are really helpful !

  2. Deepshikha says

    You reminded me of my favorite teacher. Thanks a lot

  3. Deepshikha says

    You reminded me my favorite teacher. Thanks a lot

  4. its awesome & really helpful

  5. Maureen Masara says

    You are awesome just discovered yor videos am preparing for MCAT you make everything easy. Straight and to the point

  6. Lot of thanksss

  7. Amazing! Thank you!

  8. FINALLY ! Newman projection wasn’t as hard as i thought, thanks!

  9. why eclipsed form has higher energy than staggered form?

  10. thank you

  11. angelina says

    so incredibly helpful and easy to understand! thank you for the awesome work!

  12. Deepika Sharma says

    I have some questions?
    When one methyl group is behind another methyl group then why energy increases ?
    What is the energy that we r talking about?
    Please answer.
    This video was amazinggggggggggggggg. thank u for helping students by allowing them to see such videos.

    • If the methyl group eclipses the other think of this as being in the other groups ‘personal space’. When the groups are too close the molecule will try to bend out of the way giving each group more ‘space’ thus decreasing its stability and increasing the energy of the molecule overall

  13. Rishu singh says

    Bad it does not start with basics

  14. Can You Please leave a video on how to draw the right fischer projection for a molecule
    And also on how to convert wedge dash to fischer

  15. Great video very helpful!!
